Absolutely, Totally, Completely False !    IBM have done no such thing.

Now, if you had a B10 with it's 945MB of DASD (you could later expand
them up to 2.4GB), you would find that about 85% of your disk would be
taken up by the system.
And with the B10's maximum 16MB of memory you will need a LOT of
patience, BUT it WILL run V3R2.

        I could be wrong, but I'm sure someone here mentioned that V3R2
would not
        run on the B models.... something IBM put in specifically (to
kill of the
        older boxes maybe?).

        Can anyone else comment?
